a week in Derbyshire in

a week in Derbyshire in summary:
– it was actually Staffordshire
– it snowed
– there was a power failure on New Year’s Eve – for 20 hours.
– we drank a lot – I mean gallons!
– we ate even more
– there was a blizzard
– there was walking
– silly games were played (Jenga by candlelight should be an Olympic sport)
– surprisingly few arguments took place
all in all, a good time was had. there is talk of planning another group holiday, although my finances, liver and waistline would all really appreciate it if that wasn’t for some considerable time.
photos may get posted here if I get the inclination.

hi honey, I’m hoooome!

yes, I am back from my wanderings in Derbyshire, and am currently sorting out my e-mail. A full and in-depth update will be posted tomorrow when I am on my PC at work and not this thing (which was built before the term “mega” was added to “hertz” to describe processor speeds). I also need to do a few revisions to the blog layout, particularly to the list of favourite blogs. so check back tomorrow, ok?
